Using WordNet for query expansion: ADAPT @ FIRE 2016 microblog track
Li, Wei B.; Ganguly, Debasis; Jones, Gareth J.F.
User-generated content on social websites such as Twitter is known to be an important source of real-time information on significant events as they occur, for example natural disasters. Our participation in the FIRE 2016 Microblog track, seeks to exploit WordNet as an external resource for synonym-based query expansion to support improved matching between search topics and the target Tweet collection. The results of our participation in this task show that this is an effective method for use with a standard BM25 based information retrieval system for this task.
